Find the Profit Pieces at the PDPW Business Conference

Annual event set March 11-12 in Madison.

We’re “Solving the Profit Puzzle” and delivering all of the profit pieces to one place at the Professional Dairy Producers of Wisconsin (PDPW) Annual Business Conference.

Register now for the PDPW Annual Business Conference, March 11-12, at the Exhibition Hall at the Alliant Energy Center, Madison. Tagged dairy’s premier event, this conference is where dairy producers will find the resources they need to solve their personal profit puzzle.

“I’m amazed and overwhelmed with the booths, and I like that the issues discussed in the sessions here are the same as we are experiencing in Minnesota,” said Doug Popp, a dairy producer from Royalton, Minn. who attended the Annual Business Conference for the first time last year.

One of this year’s featured general session presenters will focus on global influencers, a topic that will hit home for producers from coast-to-coast. Matt McKnight, Vice President of Export Ingredient Marketing and Industry Affairs for the U.S. Dairy Export Council, will unravel the tangled web of global influencers and understand dairy's changing dynamics.

Gas prices, global trade policies and growing demand for dairy products, such as whey, all have an impact on your milk check, farm-gate delivery charges and the cost of each pound of dry matter your herd consumes. This session helps lock dairy producers’ sights on components that may push and pull prices. While profitability isn't a one-jump move, understanding the economics makes the picture clearer.

When you check out the complete Annual Business Conference agenda, you’ll see that this conference is filled with dynamic and diverse sessions. Along with never-before-seen general sessions and the opportunity to spend time with industry’s preferred suppliers in the Hall of Ideas, attendees will also find value in the many specialty sessions featuring the latest information and profit solutions. With so many specialty session options, you won’t know which one to attend first.

“If you’re a dairy producer who is determined and focused on being in the business for the next 5, 10 or 25 years, the PDPW Annual Business Conference is the place to be,” said Kevin Griswold, PDPW President and dairy producer from Ixonia, Wis. “It’s your one-stop conference to retool and reinvest in the machine that is driving your future – you.”

You'll leave the Annual Business Conference ready for the fast-pace of today's business world. This conference will grow your professional and business skills, expand your network and connect you with profit pieces for your business’ future success. This is one conference – regardless of your management style or dairy size – you can’t afford to miss!
